WEST NYACK, NY – AHEPA Chapter 455 in conjunction with Fr Samaras of Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church, and with the support of AHEPA District 6 Governor Dean Moskos, has the privilege to provide this year’s charity event for the children of St. Basil Academy.

The first part of the event was a Christmas Giving Tree where chapter members placed the gifts that were requested in the form of ornaments in the narthex of Sts. Constantine and Helen Church. Within one hour after Sunday services on November 28, the AHEPA members and parishioners pledged all the gifts that were needed.
